leisure time, save for retirement, and pay for education so they can grow up earning more than their parents. this. the weekend the american economy is not creating any jobs of any kind -- enough jobs of any kind. to many americans cannot have the skills they need. the path to a prosperous middle class is a combination of a vibrant economy that creates and positive role. federal policies on the national debt, taxes and regulations, allclass job creation. opening and growing a business. they are afraid of getting hit with a massive tax increase to pay off this debt. one of the leading causes of our growing future debt is the way medicare is currently designs for the future -- designed for the future. the sooner we act, the likelier we can do it without making any currently in the system, like paul ryan's and my mother. a complicated tax code is also hampering the creation of jobs. you cannot open a business if uncertain. that is allied i oppose the present's plans to raise taxes the -- that is why i oppose the dent in the debt. over half of the private sector workers and america
're not jeopardizing our future by, you know, putting in dramatic cuts to education and health care and innovation. we've got to have balanced spending cuts. we have to make sure we bring savings out of entitlement programs like we did with the affordable care act. $716 billion in savinging out of medicare and added eight years of insolvency when we passed the affordable care act. president obama put $360 billion on n. savings on the table in his proposal to the republicans. so we've got it all on the table. the republicans have given us a letter with a, you know, sort of vague outline of five things that they want to consider. tax reform is important. that we have to do over the long term next year. hopefully we can try to get some agreement quickly. but the bottom line is that democrats have put a whole bunch of things that we're willing to agree to on the table and the republicans need to show their cards and stop playing chicken with our economy. >> congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz, thank you. >>> and -- >> thank you. >> matt and liz, she makes the point about republicans and whether the con

for college education as well. >> dealing with the mortgage interest deduction would hurt the middle class. >> if you take it in isolation. it depends how you balance it off. the rubric for us is, in has to be balanced. it has to be fair. it has to be comprehensive. it should be on the table to be discussed. we do not think that randomly you can pick things out, without understanding the unintended consequences that would provide. >> on the mortgage interest deduction -- i have a bill setting out there, trying to garner some republican support, that takes away the mortgage interest deduction for yachts that count as second homes. mr. larsen is talking about a schoolteacher trying to make sure it is affordable to buy a home, while there is a mortgage interest deduction available to people who buy yachts. that is coming from the person who represents the land of 10,000 lakes. i do not see a yacht in minnesota. that is the type of reform we are talking about. instead of signing on for that, they come to the middle class. that is where the frustration and fairness lies. >> we have heard from y
for us. if you will do something on stem education, qualified members help us identify companies from understanding of their home markets. we work with local chambers, members of congress, and we have developed a network of convenience, local business leaders better interested in participating and know how to recruit people. so far we are brought more than two thousand people to the white house this year alone representing more than 500 towns and cities, probably around 1800 companies. out of 10 our ceo's. two out of 10 are investors. host: scott. georgia. republican. caller: i may health insurance broker and i have a couple of the employees and a comment on the aca. i agree and something had to be done on health care costs, but this will just add fuel to the fire. part of the provisions that have yet to come into effect, one of which requires the highest ratio from three-to-one, that is your lowest rate cannot be any higher than three times your lowest rate. so, if you have a 64-year-old and a 19-year-old, you can not charge the real cost because the risk factors for a 19-year-old ar
of an outstanding democrat on the subcommittee on work force protection of the education and labor committee and that is congresswoman lynn woolsey. congresswoman woolsey knows their struggles. four decades ago she was a single working mother supporting three children. she knows about the economic security of families. later as a resource manager she knew things like working families are still fighting for like paid leave, paid sick leave, retirement and health care. serving as chair and ranking member of the work force protection subcommittee, lynn woolsey was instrumental in helping to get the lilly ledbetter fair pay act signed into law and military families dealing with military deployment and injury. lynn woolsey was a partner to ensure coal miners are kept safe and healthy on the job. she went underground in a coal mine with our late colleague donald payne to require firsthand knowledge of how the workplace works and the environment in which those miners go to work every day. in the classroom, lynn woolsey continues to fight for women and working families. she was -- i want to say hars

[ sniffing ] yep. it's amazing what a single scoop of gain freshness can do. >>> to all the small business owners who are tired of the system rigged against them, we're going to hold the big guys accountable. >> welcome back to "the ed show." that's elizabeth warren of massachusetts who has been a true champion of holding the big guys accountable. they might be in for a rude awakening. warren will likely become a member of the banking committee. nothing is final until it's confirmed by caucus. warren will have influence over proposed regulations of wall street and the banking industry. it would be a perfect development for progressives in the country. elizabeth warren practically created the consumer financial protection bureau as part of financial reform. warren would be and has been a great choice to the agency. but republicans threaten to block it. lobby
difficult, if you will, less tolerant, less welcoming, whether it was immigration or education or voter suppression that we saw recently. each and every one of these issues really was counter to my values, that my mother and father raised me on. and the kind of ethics that i believe in that we should be a tolerant people. a welcoming people. and try to have a big tent as a party rather than try to shrink things. and the republican leadership, i really don't think the republicans, my mom and dad still happen to be republicans, but i think the leadership of the party today has moved in a direction that even jeb bush said not long ago, probably it would be difficult for ronald reagan to succeed in today's republican party. >> what do you parents make of your defection? >> they're happy about it. my father is the son of a greek immigrant. my mother's family immigrated from ireland. and we are a nation of immigrants, as you know. you being one, i assume. and because of that, i think the tolerance that we should have as a nation doesn't stand for deportation. and an education, it doesn't stan

[laughter] americans are compassionate people. there is a consensus in this country about our obligations to the most vulnerable. those obligations are beyond dispute. the real debate is how best we can meet them. it is whether they are better met by private groups or government, voluntary action or government action. the truth is, there has to be a balance between the two. government must ask for the common good while leaving private groups free to do the work only they can do. there is a vast middle ground between the government and the individual. our families and our neighborhoods. the groups we joined and the places of worship. t
a good education by this very union. they will go on strike if you try to connect performance with reward. half the children in the schools, poor black and hispanics whose parents can not afford to put them in private schools which is what everyone else is doing, half of them drop out before they graduate. what of the ones who graduate are functionally illiterate. they will never get a decent job. >>eric: david, let's stay on the video. the teachers union puts this together and in the video they talk about the amount, the bailout, specifically, that money was spent to rich people bailed out rich bankers and the rich stock market. hopefully we have a full screen of this. look at money that came from that stimulus package that they reference in the video, the department of education, $53 billion. >>guest: it is going into the pockets --. >>eric: let me finish, special education $12 billion. and unemployment, additional insurance, the billions and billions and billions continue to go in but they point the finger at the rich, more class warfare. >>guest: these are socialists and they are expl
to educate him. and i am very passionate as many americans are about our second amendment rights, and so i was originally just trying to explain to him. i wasn't trying to be nasty. i was really trying to make him understand where this debate was coming from, and he backed me into a corner and so i came back with a musket. >> well, i think that musket thing was absolutely terrific. but i've got to ask you, i need some help here. i'm going on the piers morgan show tonight. we're going to talk about taxes and regulation spending. so i'm not going to tweet, carol. i'm actually going to be there signature across from him. what should i do? >> i think you'll be fine. piers kind of tends to go to the socialist side of things. he's from britain originally, and he doesn't understand the capitalist system all the time. so i think if you and i just keep educating him, keep explaining to him things like the second amendment, like the free enterprise system, like capitalism, i think eventually it will get through to him. >> how is free enterprise doing? how is free market capitalism doing? i'm kind of
... ... nothing transforms schools like investing in advanced teacher education. let's build a strong foundation. let's invest in our teachers so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> the fascination with taxes i paid i find to be very small-minlded compared to the broad issues that we face, but i did go back and look at my taxes. over the past ten years i never paid less than 13%. i think the most recent year is 13.6% or something like that. >> 13%. you know who would hate that? you know who would hate that mitt romney paid only 13% in income taxes? the guy who beat mitt romney's father in the campaign for president in 1968, right wing reactionary richard nixon. that's right. republican richard nixon who was as conservative as republicans got in those days hated the idea that rich people got away with paying little or no income taxes. he introduced a bill that would create a minimum tax that rich people would have to pay even if they had the giant package of deductions and loopholes like romney that got their tax liability down to zero. they had to pay something. the nixon idea w
to talk about how they get health care, how they educate their kids, he has to talk about a lot of things that republicans traditionally don't like to talk about when it comes to certain groups of people. that is the test for marco rubio and paul ryan. >> what about chris christie and bobby jindal? >> christie is in temporary quarantine because of his behavior in the last week of the election. he is in talk. -- detox. >> detox on the jon stewart show. >> you have bobby jindal, kelly ayotte, ted cruz -- unless you are barack obama, you don't imagine yourself as president before you even serve in this and it. [laughter] he will have to wait. obama, of course, is the one exception. but this is a strong young outfield. mitch daniels and in jeb bush on the outside. what this tells you is what could have been in 2012. you remember the line of it republican candidates earlier this year, it was not exactly a credit to the party. and 20 debate heard them. -- hurt them. >> the quarantined governor christie and the new jersey has a 72% favorable job rating among his constituents, the highest ever re

while still being able to invest in things like education and research and development that are important to our growth and if we're going to protect middle class families, then we're going to have to have higher rates for the wealthiest americans, folks like me. >> white house correspondent dan loa lothian is in washington, d.c. this morning. so who has the ball? and whose court is it in at this point? >> reporter: first of all, we know that house gop had that counter offer, which white house spokesman jay carney has referred to as, quote, magic beans and fairy dust. we expect for republicans to put pressure on the white house to engage. in addition to that, to lock for whatever ways the white house might be able to look for cuts to entitlements. i think what's difficult now is to figure out exactly where the negotiations stand because from the white house perspective, they're saying that conversations continue, but there are house republican aids who are telling me that there are no phone conversations, no e-mails being exchanged. so it's difficult to tell how they ca
some jobs out there for some people and that's in infrastructure, education, job restraining. we've got to get people back to work. then, when they've got the money, they can go out and start buying things and the business community will respond by hiring more people. that's the stimulus that we need. we know that the last stimulus program worked. i don't care what the republicans say. the facts are there. the last stimulus worked. what we need now is to boost that. we need more spending right now. we need more spending right now to put people to work in the short term. you do that and you'll get the economy going again. >> when you look at where we have had like natural disasters, like hurricane sandy in the northeast and other things that have shown the need to rebuild the infrastructure -- i mean, when a hurricane can close down the biggest city in the country for a week and the new jersey coast, we're not talking about handouts here. we need to rebuild tunnels and bridges and highways and roadways. you would think that would be above partisan bickering. >> it's been said before, al,
poverty. highlighting things like education are a path laid to burning the right to be heard. because a lot of communities are saying we just don't believe that you care about us. i think that having folks who communicate well is a ticket to making that hard battle happen. greg: i read his books and offense. your latest one, you revert to the republican party as hard wing conservatives. that they are being pushed into political relevance. >> yes, for example, the fight over the fiscal cliff is taking place between speaker boehner and the white house. they put republicans in the senate in a rare type of position where they are in the game, but they are not the leaders of the game. see what is going on in the senate in general. we're republicans should have the majority of the senate, if not highly ontological candidates were nominated by the party base. thinking of someone like richard murdoch in indiana. there's no reason the democrats should not hold that seat. they are putting republicans in the senate at a disadvantage. >> the other thing is that ted cruz is a tea party candidate,
retired educators in california who had pensions of more than $100,000 a year, okay. that's 700,000 of them in 2005. in 2011, there were 5,400 retired educators who had pensions of over $100,000 a year. >> greta: california is in deep trouble. >> deep trouble. >> i don't think in this country people are ever going to work towards solving these problems when we do these hits on different people. i mean, this is like the rich are so bad, they're urinating on the poor. >> yeah. >> greta: you know, no matter how we resolve or how we work towards resolving things, when you declare war. >> it's really inflammatory and ataghtattracts a lot of attenti. it was narrated by ed asner, by the way, the liberal actor. it obscures the fact of how wealthy the unions are. from the city journal article, in the last decade, the teachers unions spent more on politics in the last decade than the oil industry and the pharmaceutical industry and the tobacco industry combined. >> greta: don't they worry with the bad situation economically in california, and they're in a really tough situation, don't you

'll be sold with a surcharge to help respect research and education to honor the great man of letters. but there was another political event yesterday on the floor of the senate. that was the absolute reverse of this noble act of veneration. in the presence of a wheelchair-bound war hero, 89-year-old former senator bob dole, members gathered, hoping to ratify a united nations treaty that's based entirely on the americans with disabilities act. it would ensure that people with disabilities are granted the same general rights as anyone else. and it's a treaty that anyone with a modicom of sense and civic fairness would find impossible to oppose, as senator john kerry explained. >> bob dole, why is he here? he's not here because he's here to advocate for the united nations. he is here because he wants to know that other countries will come to treat the disabled the way we do. >> yet incredibly, republican[ç refused to support the treaty. the measure, which required a two-thirds majority failed by a vote of 61-38. it was a shameful episode as senate majority leader made clear after the v
access to education and justice and transportation, all of the services that are essential and guaranteed by our constitution should be part of who we are. nonpartisan bipartisan, the argument that it would undermine united states sovereignty promote abortion, undermine care of children by their own parents, all completely unfounded. i hope that this may sound naive, once more of the truth is known by more of the people who can mobilize those veterans groups, more of the natural constituencies of both parties that we can prevail. >> eliot: look, one thing i know you are not from dealing with you as a lawyer, senator, naive, you are not. i think you're exactly right. let's hope that the light is shaneed on how fella cius their arguments are. senator, continue the fight as you always do. you never quit. senator dick blumenthal. thank you for joining us. >> eliot: will john boehner and mitch mcconnell actually leave this time? coming up next. ice breakers mints. break the ice. question: why are ice breakers mints called mints? answer in a moment. fruit just got cooler. fruit on one side, co
paying deficit while still investing in education and research that are important to growing our economy and if we are serious about protecting middle class families then we are going to have to ask the wettiest americans to pay higher tax rates. that's one principle i won't compromise on. >> higher tax rate, of course, at issue and whether or not as republicans had hoped they could just close loopholes and tax deductions and that could. >> he keep say the wealthiest americans but $250,000 that's not the wealthest of america. >> right. so there was some word during the campaign when joe biden let slip that $1 million would be the threshold for which they would begin to tax the wealthest americans. marco rubio on a saturday morning addressed as well. they are going after each other. senator marco rubio and president obama in these dueling addresses. >> we must get the national debt under control. taxes will not solve our 16 trillion-dollar debt. only economic growth and form of entitlement programs will control the debt. woe must reform the job killing tax code by getting rid of unjustif
equipment, in r&d, in science education and infrastructure and so forth. the question many people, sir, don't want to consider is where do we get those resources with those enormous debts? i asked our research department if they would make a reasonable prediction of how important interest costs would be if we did nothing, and their estimate without any explosion in interest rates was as follows: within 25 years or so, our interest costs would jump from about 1% of the gdp to 12% of the gdp or roughly four times the total investment made in r&d, science education and infrastructure. and if we ever permit that to happen, we will have assured that we're going to have what i call a slow growth crisis. and that's at least my way of formulating what happens if we don't do anything. but, mike, please, take over. this is your meeting, not mine. >> well, one of the things i don't claim to be here is an economics expert, although it's from a national security standpoint, and i've felt this way for years, that it's not just about the health of our economy, it's around the world, it's the health of eco
, while still being automobile to invest in things -- able to invest in things like education and research and development that are important to our growth, and if we're going to protect middle-class families, then we're going to have to have higher rates for the wealthiest americans, folks like me. >> white house correspondent dan lothian joins us live from washington this morning. nice to have you with us. >> good to see you. >> what's the next move for republicans, dan? >> well, you know, i think republicans are in a difficult spot here. one of the sticking points is this $800 billion in new tax revenue. this is part of speaker john boehner's proposal. it doesn't call for more taxes on the wealthy, but it does call for eliminating some deductions, closing loopholes. nonetheless, there are some conservatives who are pushing back on this. they think that this will hurt job growth and these are conservatives who are backed by the tea party. they're outright rejecting it. what you're seeing here developing is that republicans are not speaking with one voice. >> republicans should not be con
of it is of their own making. you cannot start with the education of the kids, teaching them to aid israel and everything it stands for and hope to have support from the people when you make a deal like that. so there are a lot of conditions . it can't happen overnight. so does the central part of the problem is they created their own problem for acceptance of any kind of reasonable deal. >> expressed some pessimism or realism about what is likely to happen in afghanistan after the departure of substantial numbers of u.s. troops. there will be back, a senseless, to where it was before september 11th. what happens in pakistan after that? democratic, emphasis on semi. >> this just adds to the conundrum of the entire area and how we deal with it. i go back to where i started. if you have some first principles that you try to apply in any controversy and recognize that as you apply them there will be circumstances for some nuance and potential compromise has required, then you approached all of these problems the way. you have very good intelligence. you can understand what is going on with in
